Collin Raye Returns To The Road With Free Show

Collin Raye is headlining a free live concert, headed up by the Utah Business Revival, in Kaysville, Utah at Barnes Park on May 30. The event marks Raye’s first public performance since COVID-19 ushered in national “safer-at-home” orders, and is one the first live concerts being held in the U.S. since the pandemic halted touring earlier this year. The outdoor event will also feature booths for local nonessential businesses to give company owners an opportunity to interact with the public to sell their goods and services.

“Hopefully, this concert will inspire similar events in other states around the country as we try to unify and start pushing back against the effects of this pandemic,” said Raye. “We will be utilizing the recommended sensible safety precautions, and I’m confident it will be a huge success for small businesses, and hopefully, the country at large.”
